Trump says a win for him is a win for factory workers
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made a pitch for the support of factory workers and African-American voters today at a campaign stop at the Lansing suburb of Dimondale.
His speech focused largely on the economy and border protection.
Part of his pitch for African-American support was to blame Detroit’s crime, poverty and unemployment on the Democratic leadership, including his rival Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton would rather provide a job to a refugee from overseas than to give job to unemployed African-American citizens in cities like Detroit who have become refugees in their own country,” Trump told the crowd.
Trump says Democrats take African-American support for granted. He says if he wins in November, 95% of black voters would support his reelection in four years.
Trump came to Michigan on the heels of a shakeup of his campaign’s leadership team and polls that show him trailing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. The Trump campaign is battling for support in the industrial Midwest.
